Abstract

A nonlinear numerical method is presented for the prediction of the hydrodynamic forces that act on an oscillating ship with a forward speed in head waves. A "parabolic" approximation of equations called "2.5D" or "2D+T" theory was used in a three-dimensional ship wave problem, and the computation was carried out in the time domain. The nonlinear properties associated with the hydrostatic, hydrodynamic, and Froude-Krylov forces were taken into account in the framework of the slender body theory. This work is an extension of the previous work of Kihara and Naito (1998). The application of this approach to the unsteady wave-making problem of a ship with a real hull form is described. The focus is on the influence of the above-water hull form on the horizontal mean wave force. Comparison with experimental results demonstrates that the method is valid in predicting added resistance. Prediction of added resistance for blunt ships is also shown by example.
